Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate - Official press release


Team NINJA, today confirmed that DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is being developed for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

The game will be published by Tecmo Koei Europe this fall as both retail packaged goods and digital download. DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE heightens the signature DOA fighting style with the inclusion of all of the new modes from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS, new stages and new fighters, including the first ever DOA appearance of Momiji and levels from the NINJA GAIDEN series to deliver the best in fighting entertainment.

“DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is a great addition to our franchise,” said Yosuke Hayashi, Team NINJA leader. “The game has a lot to offer and we’re excited that our fans will have the opportunity to enjoy an experience that delivers on our signature high energy fighting entertainment.”

DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE is the definitive DEAD OR ALIVE 5 package, with new content aimed to bring players the best 3D fighting experience to date. The addition of modes from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 PLUS, including “Skill Info Plus” and a tutorial mode, will allow novice and expert fighters to refine their fighting style with razor-fine precision.

Players will take on the roles of their favorite DEAD OR ALIVE fighters—as well as combatants new to the franchise—in an intense, action-packed brawler set in visually striking locations from around the world. The game’s dynamic interactive stages include the return of classic fan favorites as well as new locations from the NINJA GAIDEN series such as Sky City Tokyo, and features deadly new danger zones, including the Great Buddha Statue, that change with the flow of the fight.

Characters in DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE continue to push a sensual yet realistic style, rendered in incredibly lifelike detail bringing every fighter to life in the heat of combat. The dream lineup is joined by the first ever appearance of NINJA GAIDEN’s Momiji who utilizes the Hayabusa-style Aiki-jujitsu taught to her by the master himself, Ryu Hayabusa.

Soon to be announced additional characters will also add to the massive cast of fighters from DEAD OR ALIVE 5 which includes Ryu Hayabusa, Hayate, Ayane, Kasumi, Hitomi, Bayman, Christie, Lei Fang, Zack, Kokoro, Bass, Rig, Jann Lee, Helena, Lisa, Brad Wong, Eliot, Tina, along with Akira, Pai and Sarah Bryant from the Virtua Fighter series.

Along with a plethora of single-player modes including story mode, DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE will retain Online battles allowing players to compete head-to-head in a variety of playing fields and battle modes with another opportunity for fighters to improve their skills as they watch competitive matches.

Currently in development by Team NINJA, more details about DEAD OR ALIVE 5 ULTIMATE will be revealed in the coming months.

So then how is this going to be handled for the Vita version then? Just curious, as I've been thinking of picking it up but decided to wait after hearing about this.

Hey Dreamking23, I sent a tip on Emperor Cow's 7th DOA5 tutorial and it hasn't been posted yet.

It would be cool if Ryo from Shenmue was added!

If we're going to be adding even more VF characters, then I hope we see Vanessa making an appearance.

Please dont rush it guys, i can wait a month or two for even an extra character,costumes or stage.

@ 6

I can definitely see this happening. They have already picked only the attractive Virtua Fighters to be in DOA so I think she has the best chance if they add anyone else.

This is awesome, loving seeing another VF character, and Ein.

It's true, DOA is the Abercrombie and Fitch of fighting games.

Kasumi in an argyle sweater... someone has been reading my DoA fanfic!

@6 Explain Akira then. He's not necessarily a looker

#17
Virtua_Kazama said on May 29, 2013 at 12:36 p.m.

There's a 14th female that will be appearing in DOA5 Ultimate. Not sure who it is...

#18
valkerionseven said on May 29, 2013 at 12:45 p.m.

Money is on Vanessa but would be interesting to see Aoi (personal favorite) then again Eleen (or w/e her name was) because of the cute factor. If were talking VF girls that is.

If not Rachel from Ninja Gaiden.

#19
YanDaMan said on May 29, 2013 at 12:59 p.m.

There better be character specific themes too. Remix all the DOA2 and 3 themes. The stage musics are so boring.

#20
Eye_of_Orochi said on May 29, 2013 at 1:34 p.m.

@ 17

Well that should be kind of obvious, he's Virtua Fighter's main character. He has weird brows but he isn't exactly ugly. The only other guys besides him and Jacky that are attractive are Lion, Brad and arguably Jean but they are also all less popular.

@ 19

Aoi looks too similarly to Kokoro (she'd be my choice too btw) Eileen just doesn't feel right for some reason (I think it's the monkey style fighting). Vanessa's looks and fighting style suit DOA to a T.

TrueGamingGuru said on May 29, 2013 at 1:52 p.m.

Can't wait for DOA5 Ultimate, I wonder if they'll do something different for Story Mode.

@everyone who is hoping for Vanessa: Don't hope for Vanessa too much, because honestly when it comes to guest VF characters for DOA5 Ultimate. The guest characters has to be the ones who debuted in VF1 characters not other VF games. Like Vanessa debuted in VF4, which is an unlikely chance. Besides I don't see details if Team Ninja that will add more VF characters, and we might end up with 4 characters that debuted in VF1.

@18 Interesting a 14th female character. I could be just guessing, but my biggest guest is either Rachel (Ninja Gaiden), maybe Dural (VF1), Kasumi alpha is really unknown, or maybe a new character. But lets hope for more news.

@20 character specific themes is very likely appear, since DOA5 Ultimate will have features that came from DOA5+ (Vita).

The new stages look pretty sweet. Looking forward to this release.

Momiji in img 4 doing hardcore G.Style, heh.

#24
Eye_of_Orochi said on May 29, 2013 at 5:26 p.m.

I actually don't like Vanessa. I just think she'd be more likely to appear than any of the remaining VF's. If there are going to be more characters I hope they don't add any more from that franchise, let's get someone fresh.

#25
Almighty_Omega said on May 29, 2013 at 5:37 p.m.

So I have to buy a another DOA5 ! lol I hope they allowed us to see each others [DLC outfits] this time around !!!!!! :) Or its no point to buy DOA costumes then .

#26
HooliganComboFTW said on May 29, 2013 at 6:25 p.m.

Good Vibration.

I think its more likely they would add another NG character over yet another VF character, but would prefer a new DoA original character since only 2 new DoA characters (more guests then new additions) were added to DoA 5 since the last game of DoA 4 (How many years waited for the sequel?) is pretty lackluster.

#27
Hajiki said on May 29, 2013 at 7:24 p.m.

@27

7 years to be exact, a lot of people felt it was unlikely a 5th game would ever get made due to all the legal trouble Tecmo was going through because of Itagaki.

Honestly, I'll be picking this up since I didn't buy the original but rather played a friend's copy so I'm not complaining.

#28
Virtua_Kazama said on May 29, 2013 at 8:11 p.m.

Keep in mind that the 14th female character is part of the swimsuit bundle. So it can't be Dural or Kasumi Alpha.

#29
TrueGamingGuru said on May 29, 2013 at 9:18 p.m.

@29 Alright thanks for the hint, since Dural & Kasumi alpha are out of the way. All it boils down to is either Rachel or someone completely new. Can't wait to see the 14th female swimsuit.

Can't wait. Want more characters.

Almighty_Omega said on May 30, 2013 at 12:59 a.m.

Everybody should see your [costume DLC] even if you didn't buy the same DLC pack ! Team Ninja better fix that crap on DOA5 and Ultimate. They won't us to spend all this money on Dlc and nobody can see it but you !
